Cofounded by UFC legend Matt “The Immortal” Brown and Conor Flynn the creator of Rx Coffee. Two like minded entrepreneurs with a passion for fitness and coffee.
WHAT THE IMMORTAL BRAND IS ALL ABOUT
Coffee with a conscious that empowers those who want to BE IMMORTAL. Our mission is to source the world’s highest quality coffees sustainably sourced via fair and direct trade. We take pride in knowing that the workers who took part in the life cycle of the coffee you drink were not taken advantage of and were paid a fair and decent wage. We want to provide the world with socially conscious and health conscious coffee.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF COFFEE
The world’s most popular beverage, coffee, is more than just an energy drink or pre-workout supplement. While coffee consumption has been shown to increase performance, not all coffee is created equal. But the health benefits sure are, that is if you are drinking high quality fresh roasted coffee. The health benefits of coffee do not discriminate on the basis of ethnicity or gender. Whether you’re a man or woman, and no matter your ethnic background, recent studies have shown that drinking coffee can increase longevity and reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, respiratory illness, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease. And it’s not the caffeine, as studies have shown it does not matter whether it is caffeinated or decaf.
There are a plethora of health related coffee studies out there, but we figured we would share a few that are backed by research. A massive review of the scientific literature on coffee published in the British Medical Journal found that drinking three to fours cups of black coffee a day provides the most health benefits overall. Prior studies have found similar benefits reducing risk for such issues as melanoma, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, type 2 diabetes, liver disease, prostate cancer, Alzheimer's, computer-related back pain and more.

Conor “The Coffee Guy” Flynn
An MBA graduate, coming from both a corporate and entrepreneurial background, Conor has a diverse business background. He grew tired of the “rat race” that is the Corporate world and eventually turned his dreams into a reality and founded his own coffee company.

He is active in his local community serving on the Board of Directors for the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, The President's Council for Florida International University, and has volunteered with Chapman Partnership for homeless assistance, where he designed a program with fellow MBA students to teach people financial literacy skills; Best Buddies International; and United Cerebral Palsy, to name just a few. The last two are especially personal to Flynn, who has a cousin with down syndrome and another with cerebral palsy.
Conor continues to volunteer for The Education Fund, which supports innovation in public education; and The Warrior Focus Foundation which seeks to place at-risk youths into health and fitness programs.
Conor is the host of the Rx Podcast, an ultrarunner, Crossfitter, and martial arts enthusiast.
